It’s wintery in Edinburgh; the semester is in full swing and I don’t know about you, but I’m really feeling the need to let loose and forget all about dissertations, job applications and the joys of degree exams. So if you’re also feeling like blowing off some steam this Galentines day, how can you make your night out that extra bit special?
Here are some ideas to get the party started in style:
1.Get ready with your gals
Blast some music, do each other’s makeup and dig out an outfit that you feel GREAT in.
2.Go out for dinner beforehand
Want to have a good old catch up with your girls? Indulge in a delicious meal and some cocktails before your night out.
Here are some affordable suggestions:
Location: The Grassmarket
Tip: The Steak Fajitas and White Sangria are to die for! They also offer great lunchtime deals during the week.
Location- Howden Street (just off Clerk Street)
Tip: Sangria and authentic Spanish Tapas; what more could you want? Their Saturday lunchtime offer of 2 courses for £10 is also pretty purse friendly.
No.8 Lister Square
Tip: No.8 offer 2 for 1 student cocktails throughout the week, so that you can get the party started early!
3.Dance like nobody’s watching
If you’re stuck in a night out rut, why not be adventurous and try out your sassiest salsa moves at Boteco Do Brasil? Their catchy Latin tunes will get you on the dance floor in no time; and if that fails, there’s always the mojitos.
4. It’s sleepover time!
Who says you’re too old for a sleepover? And the best bit? Waking up with your mates to giggle over last night’s antics.
What do you think makes the perfect night out? And how will you be celebrating Galentines Day? Let me know in the comments!
